Tracy Press Endorsement
The Tracy Press has shown their true Ostrich colors.
McCloskey’s campaign, fueled by Pombo detractors from the Democratic political machine has stirred up emotions, distortions and, quite frankly, a lot of hogwash. If this were any other public dialogue about the average citizen, a slew of lawyers would be filing lawsuits for slander on this citizen’s behalf.It could not have been written better had it been penned by Wayne Johnson, Pombo's political Machiavelli.
If anything, this 11th Congressional District primary is a good warm-up for the fall campaign where we expect even more false accusations will be leveled against Pombo.
While they did run several LTE's that expressed a contrary view, one was from a Democrat who switched to vote for Pete and just underscores one main point of the Tracy Press endorsement, that this is all a Democratic Machine hatched plot.
This should get most readers of this blog a bit pissed off, that everything was have written about is "hogwash" or "slander". While Cheri Matthews, editor of the Tracy Press, has written freely in her blog about journalistic ethics, she fails rather miserably when it comes to issues that are close to home town hero, Tricky Dick Pombo.
